Ryan Giggs has consented to being named as the Premier League footballer behind a high-profile injunction against The Sun newspaper, the High Court heard yesterday.

The Wales international brought the injunction against the paper in April last year to prevent it publishing claims of an extra-marital affair between him and Imogen Thomas, a model. But despite the injunction he was widely named, after being identified in Parliament.

The High Court in London is considering whether he can sue The Sun for alleged breach of privacy. Mr Justice Tugendhat reserved his decision on whether the claim should proceed.
